MP Metcalfe leads the Tree of Life service at St Luke’s hospice

Mayor Mo Larkin conducted the countdown to the switch-on of the Tree of Life which was followed by carols from local school choirs. The Thurrock Spectrum Brass Band provided the prelude to the event.

For many hospices, including St Luke’s, the Light Up A Life service is one the best loved and most meaningful events in the calendar.

The local MP commented: “I was delighted to play a small role in this extremely moving and beautiful service. It provided a moment of reflection amidst Christmas preparations for people to remember those who are no longer with us. It also provided an opportunity to reflect on the fantastic work of St Luke’s which in itself has become a light in the community.”

“I would like to thank all those who took part in the event, particularly the local schools choirs who sang beautifully.”

St. Luke’s Shops will display new dedication lists on the 15th November, 29th November, 13th December and 23rd December. Each list is subsequently updated. All dedications should be received no later than Friday 13th December to ensure the final list on December 23rd is correct.
